version can be either easy (if you want to use 18.04.1 for everything) or a 
bit more complicated if you actually want to use okular 1.4.1 but both are 
doable (for the second see the code in add-bugzilla-versions)

Date seems hard since it seems something we have to remember doing manually 
and that's never good :D

Anyhow, code for the release scripts we use for KDE Applications is at

Patches welcome :)
